Recently, Miguel Cabrera had his second run-in with the law involving a DUI.
It appears as of late, DUI's among sports figures are on the rise.
It seems like every time we turn on the television, we learn another sports figure is having problems with controlling their drinking habits.
It occurs so frequently, most of us have become immune to hearing about another sports figure being arrested as we just shrug our shoulders.
But why are there so many athletes having problems with the law?
Is it because of their ignorance towards the law?
Is it they feel because of their social status, the same rules do not apply to them?
Or is it because of the constant media coverage of our athletes which is why we hear about it so much as oppose to the past?
Or it might be because the law enforcement is less likely to be lenient towards sports athletes because they know the rewards and money they can receive if they arrest a celebrity.
Whatever the case may be, athletes, if they like it or not, are suppose to be role models.
They are suppose to be examples to the younger generation and to even adults.
When an athlete does an ignoramus act like a DUI, they lose every credibility of being a role model.
They become an embarrassment and joke instead of epitome.
The hero become the goat.
These incidents will forever cast a dark cloud over their careers.
Here are the ten worse DUI moments in sports history.
